Thanks Gene, but being "historical" it has to be wood. That way I have to do it again in 6 years because the H.O. wont keep up on painting. LOL

Just wondering Gene, since you are from Jersey, and in the concrete business, do you make "boots" on the side. LOL

Are you matching up to existing trim and need them custom made? Or can you buy a reasonable likeness to replace it with?

Most trim work on Historic homes where custom made by local craftsmen and local materials. These have to be custom made if you need a perfect match.

there's a few guys on this forum and in the NE that could do that for you.:whistling

As I thought a wealth of information

I appreciate all the input guys. As of today I'm not sure which route the customer is going to take, it could be a restoration, or a preservation job. If it goes the restoration route I will need some new turnings to replace the balcony rails over the two main porches and some ballusters for a set of stairs. If it goes the preservation route I will need lots of Abatron. Jason and Derek I will keep you guys in mind. This is my first serious job in this area of work and I am excited,so until the customer decides what road she can go I'm just trying to compile resources and info. I will try and upload some pics if I can get them off my phone.
